Le-Glue is a solution to a problem that many kids face. After hours of building an amazing structure, animal, or vehicle out of building blocks like Lego® and Mega Bloks®, it falls on the floor and bam, your work of art is broken into pieces. Le-Glue is a non-permanent adhesive created specifically for this ubiquitous kid problem. The inventor of Le-Glue is 12-year-old Tripp Phillips from Dalton, Georgia. On the Season 10 premiere of Shark Tank, Tripp (with his dad Lee and sister Allie) presents his business and seeks a $80,000 investment in exchange for 15 percent equity for his patented product. Tripp got the utility patent when he was 10, making him one of the youngest people in history to hold a patent!
Not only is Le-Glue strong but it also dissolves in warm water and is non-toxic. It’s made of natural food grade materials. But knowing how kids like to eat stuff they shouldn’t, Tripp added a bad taste to Le-Glue so they won’t be tempted, “just to be extra safe,” says Tripp. New episodes of Shark Tank air Sundays at 10pm on ABC, right after Dancing with the Stars: Juniors.
